Title: The REAL NSM Weekly
Post by: Latios212 on May 05, 2015, 12:34:47 AM
Welcome back to NSM Weekly!

This topic is just for the official newsletter only, as per popular request. Discussion (and everything else) should happen here (

Dear all,

          NSM Weekly is a weekly (or rather, whenever we feel like updating it) experimental publication in which we recap things that happen during each week. In theory, we’ll have different sections written by different members and assembled to make a kind-of-coherent newsletter, but, you know, getting people to do things is HARD. Please post here or PM me with any ideas you have or things that you would like to contribute. I’m the captain now. :)

          (Why did I make a new topic? Well, I need to be able to update the OP with links, news, and things.  I’ll also move over the mess of news fragments from before onto here, so as to be better organized.)

Birth of NSM Weekly by braixen1264
NSM Weekly has officially started up... Ellipses are unprofessional. yay.
Also name change. Because apparently daily pushes it. I also took the liberty of changing the name because the original represented an unattainable ideal. Grammar. Because literacy skillz.
Let's get this barrel rolling now, shall we?

PM me for a job interview
Never mind, I'm 14. Never reveal ages if the person is under 18. I don't know how job interviews work. So if you want to be in just say so and you're in.
Also I don't know how this newspaper stuff works(again, I'm 14) No asides, this isn't some personal advice column. Also no ages under 18. so help needed.
And how do you guys want to organize this thread? Leave your suggestions here. Punctuation is both useful and mandatory. Use it correctly or you're fired.

Member Spotlight by Latios212
This week has seen the arrival of three new ambitious members. Welcome, Pianist Da Sootopolis, Kecleon, and Yug_Guy!

I haven't found something on here I can't at least sight read through all the way.
A new member who has already shown he knows a thing or two about music, PDS's arrangements and recordings are definitely things to watch for in the future.

Wazzup People I'm Kecleon. I'm working on Pokémon Emerald/Ruby/Sapphire songs that no one else has created.
For This project only I use Widi.
Not only is Kecleon apparently the sole user of "Widi", but he has also taken on the task of arranging missing songs in the Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald soundtrack. Excellent!

Hello All! I'm Yug Guy (call me whatever you want, I really don't care), and I've been using this site for quite awhile, but it's only now that I've decided to start making contributions!
gotta go submit my first sheet now!
A guy with an awesome palindromic name who's already contributed. :)

It's good to have more chill people around. Especially given a certain someone won't be returning, NSM Forums is taking steps back toward being the welcoming, conflict-free place of discussion and assistance that is has been and should be.

New Activities by Latios212
A bunch of new activities are starting to get some attention.

NSM Daily
braixen1264's small idea has grown into a (hopefully) regularly updated newsletter. Of course, this happened...
I'll take over the publication as chief editor.

Comedy 101
Using questionable teaching methods...
How you taught the lesson? With a horribly written example of a comedic story.
Maestro's class seems to work anyway.
Sandwiches. :)
someone help me I'm laughing so hard I fell out of my chair and can't get up

Secret Valentine 2015!
I recall doing this before but I guess that we all need LOEV more this year than anything else!
A great opportunity to bring people at NSM closer together, this project is nearing completion!

New Happenings by Latios212

New Member: cashwarrior1! Both cashwarrior1 and Kecleon have already arranged Pokémon tracks and are seem intent on doing more!

Another Maestro Project: The project is named Hexameron - An Invitation, an Adventure. Maestro aims to piece together unique variations of a single song, all arranged by a group of NSM arrangers! So far, deciding which song to experiment on has been difficult, but with polls finally up, the issue should be resolved within a week so the fun part (arranging) can begin!

Revival of Video Game Trivia: NocturneOfShadow and I found an old thread that blueflower999 was willing to continue hosting trivia on. Game on!

Dudeman writes things creatively: Just sit back and relax while reading one of Dudeman's short stories. (Seriously, more people need to read them. The Creativity Corner in general needs more love.)

The TWG Game may be inactive, but its participant's minds are quite the opposite as everyone wonders the same thing: WHERE'S DAVY?!  The creator has been gone for several hours now, and the phase update is much overdue.  Unable to find the creator himself, I interviewed a few of the players to try to establish the local opinion on Davy's disappearance.

emcee_mikey: Mariolegofan!  NocturneOfShadow, NSM Weekly.
mariolegofan: Hey.
emcee_mikey: Would you be available for a quick interview?
mariolegofan: Of course!
emcee_mikey: Great!
emcee_mikey: So, are you currently playing in TWG LXXV?
mariolegofan: Yes, the first I actually enjoy. (Mariolegofan spit his tongue out at me here)
emcee_mikey: Awesome!  Now, how balanced do you feel this game is?
mariolegofan: Well, honestly, it's boring.  I guess Davy being gone today just slowed it down a little.  He should be back soon!  Then it will pick up again!
emcee_mikey: Interesting.  So davy is gone?  Where do you think he is?
mariolegofan: Well, today is [his] birthday.....hopefully he isn't dead. (At this point he defies logic and makes an "X" shape with his mouth)
emcee_mikey: Hm... that's quite a macabre thought.  So do you feel confident in a victory for your team at this point?
mariolegofan: Perhaps, I am still fairly new at the game.
emcee_mikey: Well, thanks very much!  One more quick question:  Could you tell us what role you are?
(at this point mariolegofan left the interview.)

emcee_mikey: Hi Bubbles!  NocturneOfShadow from NSM Weekly.  Are you available for a few quick questions?
bubbles: Sure.
emcee_mikey: So, how much fun would you say the current game is?
bubbles: On a scale from 1-10, about a 3 (sorry!!)
emcee_mikey: Oh, well that's a shame.  Any particular reason why?
bubbles: TWG is fun, but no one is even posting so there's not much playing going on.  But there's some interesting roles so its still kinda fun.
emcee_mikey: Well that's nice.  How confident are you in a victory for your team at this point?
bubbles: Not really sure actually, since the humans seem pretty [CENSORED].
emcee_mikey: Given the disappearance of game's creator Davy, what do you think will transpire next?
bubbles: He's out enjoying his birthday!! Give the man a break- at least he has an excuse for being inactive.
emcee_mikey: Mariolegofan said he might have died.  Do you believe this theory holds any sway?
bubbles: Possibly.  I don't know where he would've gotten that idea from; it's always possible for that to happen though
emcee_mikey: Really.  Do you think Mariolegofan might be behind the attempt to end davy's life?
bubbles: You seem pretty confident that hes already dead/goin to be dead soon.
[at this point my editor in chief walks in]
maestro: So I just walked into something.
bubbles: Personally i'm more suspicious of you than mlf.
bubbles: yeah maestro hes interviewing me on illegal stuff!  [I'm a tattletale!]
emcee_mikey: Hehe... now see here, I'm just the reporter.  I'm not actually RESPONSIBLE for anything persay.
bubbles: trying to get me to spill twg secret beans!
emcee_mikey: Alright, alright, let's not be hasty.  I just have one more question for you: What is your role?
bubbles: my role is to keep everyone happy and not doing illegal stuff
emcee_mikey: ...It was worth a shot.

Well folks- there you have it.  Out enjoying a birthday, or possibly murdered in cold blood?  YOU DECIDE!

Man, what's with all the bots lately?
About ten bots have arrived this past week. Many of them seem to be advertising some kind of medical product, which makes no sense at all. At first they’re kind of entertaining...
...but after a while it’s just silly ( We probably need some better security features around here. GET OUT, BOTS! (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻) (Or at least improve your grammar.)

Creativity Corner Revival by Latios212

Anyone there?....... there?....... there?.......
With a few notable exceptions, a lot of things have slowed down considerably or simply stopped. A listing:
- Few new arrangements (but the ones that do pop up are really great!).
- Arrangement projects have stopped dead in their tracks.
- Poor Bespinben singlehandedly manages the entire Submissions board.
- No TWG.
- No forum games have been active at all, save for Questions.
- No one helps the lonely reporter here. :c
- Relative silence from many top posters (okay, maybe a break from Maestro isn't the worst thing in the world).
- Where is Deku?????
